Maverick open new skatepark in Cromer

Cromer_PRESS REV

Maverick Industries have opened a new skatepark in Cromer, Norfolk recently with a gnarly looking concrete wave. Aside from the unique features and styling, the park is also furnished with all the functional items you might expect in a small skatepark, these include a spined mini-ramp with roll-overs, extensions, hips, a clam-shell pocket, jump-box and a small flat bank with ledges and a rail.

“Cromer is a coastal town in north Norfolk, just up the road from Sheringham, whose skatepark features a nautical theme and a concrete fishing boat,” says Maverick’s Ian Jennings. “Not to be out-done, Cromer went for a themed approach again, with a skateable replica of the towns’ iconic lighthouse and a nod to the local beach and surf culture in the form of an over-vert wave. The park has coloured concrete and is lots of fun, lots of flow, and has something for everyone. Once again built to an exceptionally high standard by our fantastic build team.”

You can find the new skatepark behind the Meadow Golf Course, off Hall road, Cromer, NR27 9JF. Map here.

Duck Lane: New combi bowl opens in Bournemouth

If you have ever taken a trip down to Bournemouth for a day out skating then you will know that their scene is full of characters who frequent Kings Park. We’ve had some great days down there over the years so the news that a new park was being opened not far from there by Maverick was music to our ears, whose design and build on this new combi-bowl looks solid.

Duck Lane has been built as part of a new Mansell Homes housing development in Kinson, put together by Bournemouth Council. It consists of a unique combi-bowl and uncompromising design as explained by Maverick’s Russ Holbert who has been working on the project:

“The design has a retro feel with endless, flowing lines. At the top end, the facility features a micro clover bowl with a superfun, triple 8 pumpline. The clover bowl opens out into a unconventional snake run with offset hips and links up with a large bowled mini ramp. The walls of the mini ramp and snake run have been designed to direct riders straight down into the pool which is 9ft deep and features two monster hips. We are so stoked on this project and just so happy to have been a part of it. Hats off to all involved!”

One of the locals involved to make this happen was Richard ‘Geordie’ Inskip, whose input working alongside the council was key:

“Being stoked with my involvement of this park is an understatement. This is by far the most american style bowl I have skated in England. The design is amazing and the lines bring concrete surfing to a whole new level, saying that, so does the build quality. Maverick have just lifted the bar for UK skateparks. If this is what we can expect from new parks, UK skating is about to enter a whole new dimension.”

Duck Lane’s new combi-bowl opened this weekend, timed perfectly for the summer months ahead. Note that the site around the bowl is newly seeded, so if you visit, make sure you respect the site and clean up after yourselves.

We will leave you with a quote from Maverick‘s Ian Jennings who sums up this new feat perfectly: “It has tons of lines, it’s progressive and accessible – yet also really gnarly, fast and above all, LOADS of FUN!” Start planning your trip as this area has a variety of parks to skate.

You can find the park just off the Ringwood Rd (A348) on Holloway Avenue, Kinson, BH11 9JS. Directions and map here.
